Following conversations about the extraordinary painting of the Crucifixion of St Andrew with Dean Yoder, Conservator of Paintings at the Cleveland Museum of Art where the original hangs, a copy of the painting in the Museo de Santa Cruz in Toledo was recorded in 3D and colour. The painting in Toledo, in poor condition but of great interest, is one of three copied versions of the original.

The painting was digitised in 3D and colour, using the Lucida 3D Scanner and composite photography, over a period of four days starting on December 14. 

The recording is part of a larger project which aims to document and analyse late paintings by El Greco and his studio, in order to establish the importance of recording the surface of paintings and reveal new information about the working practice of the artist’s studio through the use of machine learning algorithms.
